This book is refreshingly original, both in story and in writing style.

I felt so at home with the honest Australian characters - from the two main protagonists, to the dear little old ladies for whom butter wouldn't melt in their mouths. We all know people just like the characters in Finding Veronica. They were real, warts and all, quirky, oddball and sometimes, flawed.

I also resonated with the Australian accents, vernacular, and colloquialisms. The author, Louise Forster, has skillfully taken...more

Funny, touching...hilarious!

I love books that make me laugh and cry and this one did both.

If you like your romance laced with sizzling attraction between two thoroughly engaging protagonists, underpinned by an intriguing mystery, you'll love Finding Veronica. This is a really imaginative tale set in an archetypal Aussie country town (with a dash of London) peopled with quirky, well-drawn characters. At the same time as I was engaged by the potential for the lovely Jennifer Dove and the absolutel...more

This is a fun read that actually had me laughing out loud. Jennifer Dove thinks she has an interesting life working as a chef in London. However, when she arrives in Australia to attend the funeral of her eccentric uncle, her life immediately becomes a whole lot more exciting. Hours after arriving, it becomes clear that there was more to Uncle Bob than she realized. A cryptic message, a mysterious Russian intruder and Uncle Bob’s missing girlfriend Veronica … what does it all mean? Throw in Calu...more
Good story, funny, sexy, and great description of an Australian country town.
The characters very well defined with an unusual twist at the end.
Fun story, great characters, wonderful descriptions put you right in the story.
This was a freebie from Amazon, I enjoyed it for what it was... a fluffy pseudo-mystery romance. Jennifer is (possibly) an Australian living in London who comes to her Uncle's estate in small-town Australia when he passed away, along with her sister and niece. They also had some piece-of-work parents and a rascal brother. I thought the cast wasn't going to work, but it did. You can guess early on who Veronica truly is, leaving you with an obvious romance and whatever the Russian guys were doing....more

Finding Veronica by Louise Forster

REVIEW Posted by Fleur on May 16, 2012 On her blog And amazon. Fleur gave Finding Veronica 4 stars.

This is funny, romantic and very sexy. A little predictable perhaps, but that only adds to the tension. Louise Forster paints characters beautifully. Jen is sparky, bright and honest; Calum is just gorgeous. I fell in love with him right away. A bevy of other well-drawn secondary characters keep the story rolicking...more

4.5 stars

I thoroughly enjoyed this book - the characters were witty and likeable, the Aussie town was quirky, and the mystery of Veronica and the foreign men was a good subplot. I really enjoyed the romance and the banter between Jennifer and Callum, and also the family closeness of Jennifer with her sister and niece. Lots of laugh out loud moments- firemen, bagpipes, and bulls - and some really emotional moments remember the uncle.

I know that there is another book called Finding Elizabeth on th...more
A cute story although it could have used some touching up and there were some grammatical errors. Once one of the main characters even had another name although maybe the errors and mistakes are only in the Kindle edition.
I enjoyed this, it's a bit predictable and I found the relationship a bit rushed, but then figured that there was maybe stuff we didn't see?

Quite a lot of typos, and there is NO way an Aussie would call undies "panties"!
Some fun, but the dialog got painfully bad a few times and I figured out the plot twist in the first chapter.

A love writing edgy, sexy romance with a dash of humour and mystery.

I joined Romance Writers of Australia to learn more about the genre. My copy editor, Danielle Ellis became my co-writer and in 2000 we placed first in the RWA Australia, Emma Darcy Award, with Found, One Lover. Some years later, I submitted it to Harlequin Australia's Escape Publishing retitled, Finding Elizabeth. They liked it a...more
